Tom Barrington Pen Sleeve Giveaway

Update 12 Oct 2016: The T&Cs below incorrectly limited this content to US only. This giveaway is open worldwide.


Tom Barrington Leather Goods and Accessories, one of the wonderful Pen Habit sponsors, is graciously providing a very cool prize for this giveaway: a single pen sleeve in either ostrich or stingray leather in your choice color (up to $70 value). Made in the US, these handmade pen sleeves feature unusual and beautiful leathers in a variety of great colors (only a small sample of which is shown above.) These pen sleeves have moved beyond a simple utility item and into the realm of the fashion accessory. They’re perfect for someone who wants their pen sleeve to have just as much style as they pen they fill it with.

I recently purchased one of Tom Barrington’s green stingray leather wallets for myself, and I absolutely love it. The quality of the craftsmanship is impeccable, and the leather is a beautiful, rich color with the amazing caviar-like texture for which stingray leather is known. I’ve not personally tried any of the ostrich items from the store (yet), but they feature a really beautiful and unique pattern that comes from where the feathers attach.

Here’s a bit of an explanation about stingray leather:

Along with Tom Barrington’s very generous prize, I’m also including a new bottle of Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine, Pelikan’s Color of the Year for 2016. It’s a beautiful color, and I’ve enjoyed my bottle a lot. I’m also including a full set of Inky Fingers Notebooks, and some other assorted pen swag I’ve picked up from the various shows I’ve attended this year.

There are lots of ways to enter this content, as you’ll see below. The best way, though, is to visit and then come back here to leave a comment mentioning which single pen sleeve you’d want if you win. (There are other ways, too, but this one will give you three entries!) As always, I verify the winning entries, so make sure you follow the rules below! So far this season, the first winner drawn has followed the rules so I haven’t had to disqualify anyone. Let’s keep the streak alive!  The content will run from through Saturday, October 22.

    Stingray orange looks cool. I am kind of conservative with my pens, so I like going a little crazier with cases and notebooks.

  • Ken

    Stingray leather brown, please, Matt 🙂

    The stingray black. Classic color

  • Bruce Rogie

    Black stingray is the one.

  • Karthus

    It’s gotta be the Stingray leather; the Ostrich looks even weirder than the birds normally do, what with the holes from the quills. For the color, blue would be my best bet as it would match many a pen

  • Kim

    Stingray black

  • gadgetfanboy

    I’d definitely go stingray green. Very cool. Thanks!

  • Big Rock Express

    I’m drawn to the stingray in brown.

  • Christopher Kelly

    The Tom Barrington stuff is beautiful. I am a big fan of green, but I feel that since it is a Stingray, it should be a Single Blue Stingray Leather case. BTW – why doesn’t Tom make 3 and 4 capacity pen sleeves? It is so hard to carry only two pens!

  • Jim Cavanaugh

    stingray in orange

  • Ross Mendenhall

    I really like the blue stingray.
